I’m back! Had a wonderful trip to the UK. If you want to view the slide show just e-mail me and I will send you the URL to the slideshow. I opted for the privacy setting, I don’t want the whole world to see unless I know who is watching
This is a picture of our trip. From Dover to Oxford, a drive through the Peak District onto the Lake District to Troutbeck. From Troutbeck to Peterborough, to Triptree, than to Bishop Stortford, and onto Ashford. From Ashford to Dover and than all the way back home.
Naturally we took some pictures of the delicious food we had.
If you plan to do a trip to the UK, try to visit the Lake District. Maybe stay at our B&B, Lane Head Farm. It is definitely worth your visit. Visit Christ Church in Oxford. Also go to Sizergh Castle and Muncaster Castle. Go for a cruise on Ullswater. Looking for a unique experience, take a drive across the Hardknott Pass & Wrynose Pass. I drove mostly in first gear, it was a 30% climb and a 25% descend. It was an experience I won’t do again soon, but I did love it. I nearly forgot. Do go to Wilkins & Sons LTD in Tiptree. Their jams & marmalades are definitely worth your visit.
Every night it went from the car to our room. Sadly, the box was never opened. We were so busy seeing the sights, I just didn’t find any spare time to quilt. The rain that was predicted hardly showed itself. I’m convinced that because I had everything with me, the sun showed itself and it was mostly dry.
I also bought lots of books. Will share the titles with you in my next post.
Will try to get back to my blogging routine soon. For those who read my gratitude post, the next posting will be Sunday.
